Canada has no choice but to adapt its energy sources and industries in a ‘just transition.’ If it doesn’t, the inevitable transition will be much more disruptive — and much less just.
Policies that encourage the use of low-carbon technology like heat pumps can help motivate residents to decarbonize their homes.
Graphene is superstrong and superconductive, and it has applications in everything from construction to electronics. But to date there have been almost no commercial uses of the material.
Environmental groups have criticised the government’s approach to nature – but what is this approach and why is it concerning?
Termites are about to experience a significant global expansion in their prime habitat, thanks to climate change. Here’s what that means for deadwood.
A new study shows what it would mean for Europe and China, and why the US might not be too excited about the idea.
Aviation has long been shamed for its carbon footprint. But cutting non-CO2 emissions may hold the key to rapid change.
The Midwest had a lot of trees, but just a few species were responsible for the bulk of the carbon storage.
The early symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headaches or dizziness, breathlessness, nausea, tiredness, chest and stomach pains and visual problems.
A review of S&P 500 companies finds carbon disclosure doesn’t necessarily mean emissions fall.
Moving around cities will change in the future as new technologies like self-driving cars gain wider adoption. Science fiction can give us a glimpse into these futures.
The world is facing one of the century’s biggest challenges: How to nutritiously feed the growing population, address climate change and not destroy the ecosystems on which we all depend for life.
More carbon dioxide in the air doesn’t necessarily mean more growth for trees, and the increasing risk of wildfires and drought has major consequences, as an interactive map shows.
Maintaining ecological balance in savannas is essential
Many of Africa’s forests are unknown to the public at large, yet so fascinating and important.
Many see carbon markets as key to channelling billions of dollars into reducing carbon emissions and protecting forests, but they also put the well-being of communities at risk.
A tax credit for companies that invest in carbon capture technology would divert financing away from cheaper and safer climate solutions.
Inoculating trees with an edible fungi can produce more protein per hectare than pasture-raised beef, while reforesting, storing carbon and restoring biodiversity.
By measuring emissions in real time, cities can take stronger action against air pollution and global warming.
Carbon capture technologies have been labelled as a distraction. But as we enter the all-hands-on-deck phase of tackling climate change, they must not be ignored.
